The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has named former Super Eagles star, Finidi George, as the new head coach of the national team. Following the departure of José Santos Peseiro, George steps up from his interim role to lead the team.

Having served as assistant coach for 20 months, George’s appointment brings anticipation for a fresh era in Nigerian football. The NFF’s Technical and Development Committee endorsed the decision, highlighting George’s experience and dedication to the sport.

During his interim tenure, George led the team to a historic victory against Ghana, breaking an 18-year winless streak. Despite a subsequent loss to Mali, George’s leadership demonstrated promise for the Super Eagles.

With a decorated playing career, including appearances in FIFA World Cup tournaments and winning the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations, George brings invaluable experience to his coaching role.

Now, George faces the immediate challenge of steering the team to victory in crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic. The NFF emphasizes the urgency of these matches as the Super Eagles aim to secure their position in Group C of the African campaign.

As Nigeria’s football community eagerly anticipates George’s leadership, all eyes are on the Super Eagles’ journey under their new head coach.
